round 2 schools to apply to


toodeep2

I applied to Boston University earlier this week to sneak in for their round 1 deadline. I took the GMAT earlier in October, scored a 690 and it's all been a bit of a last minute decision.

I'm wondering now if I should apply to some other programs just in case there might be something better. But it looks like most round 1 deadlines have passed. Can anybody suggest a few schools I might apply to in the next couple of weeks to meet round 2 deadlines?

My profile: American male, 690 GMAT/ 4.5 years experience in client management for a mortgage firm. Solid undergrad at a top liberal arts college with some extra-curriculars, clubs, fraternity, etc.) Want to go into finance. I applied to BU because I like the city but I am open to other places.

Rochester or Georgia - Terry, maybe?

I think the top tier of schools for finance (Booth, Columbia, Wharton) might be a bit of a reach for you. I'd maybe pick the one from the top tier that you're most interested in and who knows, maybe it will work out...

Also, Cornell - borderline reach but look into it as well.

Thanks laurie, much appreciated. By the way what do you think of Emory, both in terms of finance placements and my ability to get an admit there?

Sorry for the delayed response, I didn't see this. I think you have a fighting chance at Emory. But it's certainly not of the same caliber in terms of finance placements as the schools above.

Many round 2 deadlines, for top finance schools like Columbia, Wharton, Booth, etc. don't close until January. That gives you ample time to focus on GMAT prep and re-take in December for a fighting chance at the schools that will add real value to your profile.
